About Meredith Chisholm

We live in Raleigh, NC and love to fish, boat, hike and enjoy the outdoors!

Meredith Chisholm purchased this house in 2016

Why Meredith Chisholm chose Boydton

This property is so beautiful and natural. We love all of the wildlife in the cove and the quiet tranquility of being in a cove just off the main lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented this house for Thanksgiving so that the family could be together for the holiday. We traveled from 3 states and Meredith went out of her way to make sure that everything was ready upon our arrival. She even had a crock pot delivered to help lighten our packing. The house was simply beautiful, inviting and relaxing! The floor plan was wonderful, lending enough room for all of us. The kitchen was amazing, situated in the perfect spot so that we could all cook, play cards and be together for all our meals. We had a great time just relaxing on the deck, fishing off the pier and taking advantage of the kayaks they offer for use. The game / family room on the lower level was perfect for all of us to play all sorts of games.

This was truly an wonderful vacation and holiday for all of us. We made lasting memories - teaching our granddaughter to fish, taking her for her first kayak experience and finally mastering the giant jenga game!

We would love to go back again, in fact, we were there only 1 day when we all agreed that this was the perfect vacation for the family.

Thank you Meredith for opening your house and your sincere hospitality. It was wonderful.

We really enjoyed our stay at Tranquility Cove! The home was very clean and inviting. Well lit steps down to the lake. The boat dock was excellent and accommodating for all of us! Three generations of Lake Gaston fun. We would definitely recommend this VRBO home. Thank you for your hospitality.

Fabulous gem and gracious owners

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had and the owner was perfect. The house is beautifully decorated but without excessive knickknacks that get in the way. There is plenty of storage throughout the entire house. You feel as though it's your own place. I've stayed in other places where you were sharing space with the owners and we felt uncomfortable like we were getting into their private things. The restrooms have plenty of storage and hooks for towels and bath robes. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully sized and not cramped at all. The closets are large so you can hang your clothes and put suitcases out of the way. There are many areas throughout the entire house and property to gather and talk. Little end tables are next to these areas so you can have drinks or snacks. Excellent TV and satellite channels to watch. There is a strong wifi signal and a booster for cellphones. We never had any problems even with the semi-remoteness of the location.The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and pans, etc. We needed nothing as we cooked and baked throughout the week. The owners even generously provided coffee K cups for the Keurig machine! There are two refrigerators one of the kitchen and one in the basement. The washer and dryer are large and wonderful to have as we were doing so many activities that we are we got dirty. It was nice to be able to wash our clothes. Plus this way when we got home we didn't have to do laundry! The owner was extremely responsive and very patient answering my questions. There are fans in every every room and help to keep the air circulating so it was never hot and it was never ice cold due to the air-conditioning. There are two zones to the air conditioning so the upstairs bedrooms can control their temperature. There is a large parking area so if you have multiple family members or friends coming everyone can easily have their own parking spot. The local roads are nice and smooth and great to run or walk on. There is very little traffic in the area. We loved all of the kayaks and even used them to fish. Life jackets are provided. There were all kinds of fish in the lake. The Lake Gaston area is very, very low key. We were surprised as we expected a very commercialized area that would focus on vacationers coming to the lake. It wasn't like that at all. There are several little towns about 20 minutes away and the largest city is about 45 minutes due to the winding 2-lane highway. Nice, quiet place to decompress.

Beautiful home, situated in the perfect spot right in one of the coves of Lake Gaston. The homeowner was very prompt to answer any of our questions. It was the perfect fit for our family. Highly recommend!

"Loved Tranquility Cove"

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Tranquility Cove. The house was immaculate and had plenty of room for 5 adult singles (who all like their own space) and one couple. We boated, kayaked, fished, floated and relaxed all week long. When we did venture out for dinner, we never encountered any traffic. Our favorite restaurants were the Watersview and Robinson Ferry & Spirits. Loved the little town of Warrenton and enjoyed locally roasted coffee at the Hardware Cafe. Thank You, Meredith, for providing information on the all these great places and for allowing us to share your beautiful retreat at Lake Gaston.

Our stay at Tranquility Cove was fantastic! The home is beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Our family of six adults enjoyed the spacious home and we had plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals. The deck was wonderful and we enjoyed eating our dinners there each evening. The dock and kayaks were perfect and we used the kayaks every day. We absolutely loved the fire pit and enjoyed spending the each evening sitting around the fire and talking. Meredith was a great host and was very responsive to our emails. We would highly recommend this vacation home to any one looking to get away and enjoy family time on the lake. We absolutely loved staying here!

Our week on the lake was outstanding! Tranquility Cove offers top notch accommodations, an excellent location, and a beautiful private setting. Really appreciated the use of the kayaks, gas grill and firepit throughout our stay. Easy access to boat rentals directly across the lake too. Owners are very accommodating and responsive. LOVED IT!!
